What a great idea! I really love baked potatoes, and could probably eat them every day but I really dislike having to preheat the oven and make my kitchen super hot for them, especially in the I usually don't make them until winter time. I'm definitely gonna give this a try, thank you!

I'm not surprised how could this be Jackie O's favorite dish. Potatoes are one of the American's staple food and any which way they cook it, she will love it. As a working mom even with all the house help around this Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes is one dish she will always enjoy cooking for the family.

These Genius Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes were a yummy side dish to the barbecue we had over this past weekend. With so much else to prepare it was great to toss them into the slow cooker and not think about them again until they were done. Really loved the olive oil and salt rubbed on to the skin, it makes a huge difference.

This is a great hack since the potatoes (which usually take so long to bake properly in the oven) will be all ready when you are finishing the other components of dinner. Are the potatoes moist enough cooking for eight hours? Because I hate when baked potatoes get too dry. Do they need anything else besides the olive oil to retain moisture?

I love these loaded baked potatoes. They're a great meal when you're feeling a little lazy and don't want to make multiple courses. Thanks for the great recipe!

In my experience, a lot of restaurants make their "baked" potatoes in a similar method, then pop them under a broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the skin a little. I like to set up a baked potato bar when serving guests, where I lay out all kinds of toppings and everyone makes their own!

This looks like a good idea. I'm not a fan of microwaved potatoes and I don't always have the hour to bake them when I get home from work. I like having something already cooking while I'm at work, knowing it will be ready for us at dinner time.

I am always in a hurry when I cook. The method I use is the microwave. I wash the potatoes, then pierce them with a fork and wrap each of them in a paper towel. I press the potato button on my microwave and they cook in under 30 minutes. I usually check the potatoes when the timer is around 4 minutes left. At this time I will turn them over for the remaining time. They come out perfect every time.

Now I want a baked potato! Why do you need to cover them in foil? I can understand putting them in foil if you are going to stick them in the oven. They will get dry uncovered and skins will get tough. But, the slow cooker has a lid to keep the moisture in.

This does look very interesting and I think I would like to try it. Firstly I often go without baking potatoes as they take so long to make and who has the time for that when you get home from work? Now I can pop it into the slow cooker, go to work and come home to a lovely baked potato! I also always rub my potatoes with olive oil. I usually slap on some coarse salt too. Then as soon as they are done, I open it, slather on some creamy butter and eat it with hot sauce! Yes, that's right. I love it.

What a great idea! The last thing I want to do at day's end is start dinner from scratch. This way I can toss the taters into the crock pot in the morning and put together the toppings when I am ready to eat. Easy peasy!
